This week was a lot of continuing to improve the basic demo so far that has been built. I keep thinking of different ways to improve the GUI for the user thinking which way would be the best for them. I showed a couple people at work to test out the application and they thought it was a good working start. One of my goals for the week was to get the number of pieces taken to complete the puzzle outputted to the user. For now it outputs them onto the canvas when the puzzle is complete. I am working on getting it to show above the image so the user can see it increases as they play the puzzle. Another idea I came up with is to work on implementing a timer to see how long it takes the user to complete the puzzle. Kathleen came up with idea of having the image shown behind the puzzle pieces so the user could have some hints that way. So this is an idea we have started to look into. Overall this week was a good researching and making improvements to the code. Today we will be showing the demo to the class to get some feed back and we still are waiting on Tim’s advice and images from him to test with the puzzle game.
Will be posting again once I get the couple ideas I had in mind working.
